administration, did that work? i don't think bolstered anything at all? >> steve: bill clinton also reminded the crowd that during the clinton days, the economy was roaring. he didn't mention, however, toward the end of his administration, the tech bubble burst and the nasdaq went down like 46% there in the last year. none the less, the former president said that the current president had it much worse than he did. watch this. >> president obama started with a much weaker economy than i did. listen to me now. no president, no president, not me, not any of my predecessors, no one could have fully repaired all the damage that he found in just four years. >> brian: the question is, did he do everything he could to fix it? >> in response to that particular sound bite, of course, you don't measure yourself, if you're obama, by clinton standards.
